U.S. Army officer's challenge to war on ISIS rejected in Washington

A federal district judge in Washington has rejected an Army junior officer's challenge to military operations against ISIS, ruling that he lacks standing and that the issue is not justiciable. Charlie Savage's report for The New York Times, with a link to Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly's opinion, can be found here. The decision is appealable to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
